KARACHI: Speaker of the Sindh Assembly Nisar Khuhro said on Monday that the resignation of Zulfiqar Mirza has been accepted and a notification will soon be issued in this regard.
"I have accepted the resignation," said Khuhro while speaking to the media.
"I have also told my secretariat that the notification that is drawn up about this should be passed. After this, my work, to an extent will be completed."
Khuhro went on to read the article in the constitution that deals with resignation.
"The constitution is very clear on the issue of resignation. The rest is official procedure, which will be made public accordingly," said Khuhro.
Khuhro said that the Election Commission of Pakistan (EC) will now do its part.
Once a member of the assembly resigns, it is the election commission’s job to hold by-elections for the vacant constituency.
Mirza tendered his resignation during a fiery press conference in Karachi on August 28 from the posts of senior vice-president of the party, member provincial assembly (MPA), member Central Executive Committee (CEC), minister for works and services and senior minister.
On 7th September this year, the Governor of Sindh Dr Ishratul Ebad accepted Mirza's resignation as Sindh's senior minister and minister for works and services.
